Reviewer: EnchantingSquirrel-83842
Rating: 5/5 Very, very happy with my purchase January 24, 2023 This is actually my second MacBook purchase from OWC. When my younger son needed a Mac for his coding course, I gladly handed over the first one. He loved it -- and kept it. But this one is every bit just as great -- speed, clarity and versatility. I have a desktop iMac but wanted the versatility of the portable. The price was great, too, as I snagged a Black Friday special pricing. So, once again, thank you OWC for a quality product at an awesome price. Oh, as a special bonus, my son graduated, got a killer IT job thanks to that first MacBook. So he surprised me by gifting me the total purchase price of my new one. Proud Mom!

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from Apple 13" MacBook Pro (2012) 2.5GHz Dual Core i5 - Used, Very Good condition.

Response from OWC, Support January 25, 2023 Thank you for the Awesome 5-star review! What a great story, and happy to hear that the Macs are in good hands :) Thanks again for your continued support, and enjoy the MacBook Pro.

Rating: 5/5 Good deal. January 13, 2023 The computer was in very good condition. $200 for a MacBook Pro with 1TB drive and 8GB of memory was an excellent deal. I rarely use a laptop, so this will do just fine for presentations, etc., when I need one.

Rating: 5/5 Smooth running Mac. September 3, 2021 I had already gotten a Mini-Mac from this company, and was pleased with that. And my long-time friend and Mac guru gave the company a top shelf rating, also. In June of 2020, I had purchased a MacBook that was a school veteran from another vendor. That machine had less memory, and while it served a need, I wanted a better experience. MacSales was very professional and their service was fast as well. I would purchase from them again.
